| Ramzi Mirshak |
Postdoctoral Fellow, Oceanography and Earth Sciences
I hold a joint position between Oceanography and Earth Sciences at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. My research interests include internal-wave mixing, application of seismic methods to physical oceanography, shelf-slope mass exchange, and sediment transport. For my PhD thesis, I studied nonlinear internal waves encountering sloping topography, but now I work mostly on issues related to seismic oceanography (please see my research interests for more information).
When not consumed by oceanography, I play violin and viola, play ultimate frisbee, and volunteer with Halifax Regional Search and Rescue.
